deadline of midnight will be missed and the country will go over the fiscal cliff. here is how the potential deal, the framework of the deal is stacking up right now. on taxes, those making incomes of up to $400,000 as individuals or 450,000 as couples, your tax rates stay the same. those earning above 400,000 as individuals, 450,000 as couples will be taxed at a 39.6% rate up from 35%. that's the clinton rate. taxes on capital gains and dividends for incomes again exceeding 400,000 for individuals, 450 for families would increase from 20% from 15%. the alternative minimum tax or the amt this is a big one is permanently indexed to inflation, in other words it's been an annual patch every year that congress had to do that. this would make it permanent. the plan also expands the child tax credit earned income tax credit and up to $2,500 tax credit for college tuition. unemployment benefits would be extended for one year and the same for the medicare dock fix. the social security payroll tax cut reverts to a 6.2%. on the estate tax, the estate tax will have a 10-million-dollar exemption per couple with additional inheritance taxed at 40 pierce. these

o'reilly. thanks for watching us. our top story tonight, the last ditch effort to avert the fiscal cliff. president obama met with congressional leaders for several hours at the white house today to try to hammer out a deal before taxes go up on more than 160 million americans. after the meeting, the president presented a new plan to avoid the cliff and said he was modestly optimistic. >> we had a constructive meeting today. senators reid and mcconnell are discussing a potential agreement where we can get a bipartisan bill out of the senate over into the house and done in a timely fashion so that we met the december 31st deadline. given how things have been working in this town we have to actually wait and see until it actually happens. the one thing that the american people should not have to wait and see is some sort of action. so if we don't see an agreement between the two leaders in the senate, i expect a bill to go on the floor. and i have asked senator reid to do. this put a bill on the floor that makes sure that taxes on middle class families don't go up, that unemployment insura

disasterrous for republicans in the middle of the fiscal cliff thing they throw boehner over the edge or start the process for removing boehner? seems if anything, again, as a pragmatic matter that even maybe hurts the republicans more or is it right? is anthony right that you are going to lose ground anyway so you might as well stick to your first principles and look at what happened to george h.w. bush after he went back on his tax no tax pledge. >> if he can't lead and offer solutions he probably shouldn't be there. there is a great game as to if not he, who. that is a fair question. these things happen fast. i'm not saying that it will. the only people that can really counter are the 435 members in there. they know what is happening on the inside. >> laura: what should he do? >> offer a solution. >> laura: what solution? he tried to offer. >> offer a bold solution and go out to america and debate it and don't do secret meetings. we had two years of simpson bowles and knew this was coming. debate the concepts with america and continue debating them. >> laura: don't worry about the fiscal cliff. >> push us off. we may need it. we need a 30% slash across the board to get in the black. we need it or we don't. >> laura: this is a drop

fiscal slope as i like to call it, not cliff. >> laura: presumably, no matter what you say about what happened a year and a half ago, the president was part of that equation, right? he is the president of the united states. >> he is. but there are three branches of government. >> laura: accountability for that as well: that's for sure and the democrats didn't get around to actually passing a budget so we need to move on to that that guy, we are going to have the republicans have only so much leverage. in effect they don't have a lot of power here, do they? not really i think we learned that speaker boehner own party we can go back as you said to the debt ceiling debate. the only reason we have cliffs and crises because democrats, particularly in the senate have completely abandoned the legally mandated budgeting process. we have not had a budget in this country for three years. that's why we keep having all these high stakes crises where we are really worried about some deadline that's looming. if we just passed budgets the way we were supposed to and the way the flaw necessitate
